Budget Shopping Weeks: L’Oreal MagicSmooth Souffle #528 Natural Beige
I decided to add some make up to my budget shopping stories. Today I’ll share with you my story about L’Oreal MagicSmooth Souffle. This product isn’t sold yet in Europe, I bought it when I was in states this spring and I’m really glad I did.
This souffle is a face foundation that:
+ applies smoothly (silicones inside) and I don’t feel it on my face;
+ medium coverage;
+ silky finish with kind of matte effect;
+ long lasting (after 8 hours it steel looks the same with a little shine on my nose);
+ reduces visibility of pores;
— it seems it wont’ be looking good on dry and extra dry skin;
— noticed that I use a lot of product for one application;
#528 Natural Beige — beige color, may be a little bit yellow inside. I took it from the shelf with light shades, but it is too dark for me. As you can’t open new product in the store I was looking on what’s inside and it did look light enough (as on my pictures). But when opened it appeared kind of almond and on my face it’s a color of sun-kissed skin when applied lightly. I’ll need lighter color for winter as I’m really pale.
So as I’ve told it feels a bit watery with some strange parts when you swatch it on your arm. But it applies smoothly on the skin and you don’t feel anything odd later.
I decided to add a picture with full make up with other products I used.

Summary: I liked this product a lot. It feels light while gives medium coverage, smooth application, reduces visibility of my pores, long-lasting, silky finish, matte skin for a long time. I’m not used to such texture and I feel I need to use it a lot. Also I think it may not look good on a very dry skin, but I’m not sure. I definitely need lighter color very soon and I’ll buy another one.
